DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375. On lightly floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll dough into 12"-inch round. Ease dough round into 9"-inch glass or ceramic pie plate. Gently press dough against bottom and up side of plate without stretching. Trim dough edge, keeping overhang intact. Transfer overhang to work surface. From overhang, with 3/4-inch decorative cookie cutter, cut 40 shapes, rerolling if necessary, for decorating rim of pie later. Refrigerate pie shell 15 minutes. Refrigerate cut shapes until ready to use.
  • Line pie shell with foil or parchment, and fill with pie weights, dried beans, or uncooked rice. Bake 12-14 minutes or until beginning to set. Remove foil with weights and bake 13-15 minutes longer or until golden.
  • Meanwhile, in large bowl, with wire whisk, mix sugar, syrup, whole eggs, butter, bourbon, and salt until well blended.
  • Place hot pie shell in 18" x 12"-inch jelly-roll pan. Lightly brush rim of pie shell with egg white. Gently and carefully press cut shapes around rim. Spread pecans in even layer in pie shell, then pour sugar mixture over them.
  • Bake 35 minutes or until filling is golden brown, puffed, and set around edge, but center still jiggles slightly. Cool completely on wire rack.
